Run the setup disk that came with the router or try this, rt clk on my network places and left clk on properties, then it will bring up a ne window where one option will be create a new connection, follow the instructions and you should be ok, with routers, you nees the key the encryption key, make sure you have it before starting or you will mess up your other wireless devices and be in the soup, good luck have patience, and don't give up. Peace,Gym
remember your network will start like theis. 192.168.1 (something from 1-254) try 1-5 first if you can't get in, also in settings it should set them up for you, so click on get settings automatically, call me here if you need more help, many times folks have so many attemts at this that it becomes the problem instead of the solution, I had a friend who had re installed the same router 4 or 5 times, and all I had to do was delete the extra connections, they are only as smart as we make them.

Wirless router will not connect with Belkin usb adaptor


There are many possibilities - we'd need many more details.

What operating system (XP, Vista, Mac, Linux)? Can you find the router with the computer? Can you connect to the router at its address (usually 192.168.<something>)? Make and model of the router? Any error messages?

How do you connect the wireless router for the first time to a HP laptop?


You need to connect physically the first time with an ethernet cable in order to access the routers setup page and get all the wireless security details from the router.

Need to reset wirless router from pppoe to dhcp because of change internet provider


Hi Chapers,
Before resetting the router need to know the settings of your new service provider which can be changed so that it can worked with your new service provider. If the router settings are correct and you are connecting you router wirelessly with computer, need not to do anything else if it was working previously.
